MIC stands against gender-based violence and has organised a number of events to highlight its pervasive effects on society. Also, see below for some supports in this area.
Women & Gender-Based Violence
In collaboration with the NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network and the Midwest Migrant Community Network, MIC Office of Equality, Diversity, Inclusion & Interculturalism hosted this important panel on Thursday 24 February 2022. The event provided an opportunity for an exchange of ideas and suggestions to improve safety for women and signpost where women can get help and support in Limerick especially in terms of domestic and gender-based violence.
A recording of the session is available to view below.
